Yep, good ole Y chromosome, this is why my husband is infertile...he has a defect. From the research we have done online there are 3 types of Y chromosome defects. 2 of these can be worked with & are still fine for IVF, 1 is not. Here is the kicker though...this defect has a VERY high chance of being passed on to a child & making that kid infertile as well.
How do you knowingly pass something on to your child that has caused you so much pain? I know by the time our child is older technology will be different, IF probably will be a thing of the past..but still. What if we pass on infertility and more? How can we do that?
We are going to still do another SA test here in a few weeks & then go back to the reproductive urologist to learn more about this defect, but I think we have pretty much made up our mind.
IVF was short lived for us...we are ok with this. We knew something may come up & it would be a possibility we could not try IVF. We are disappointed, but we will be ok. We now have answers, so that is nice...for years we did not know.
Now how was my hubby so lucky to get this? We will never know...but it is what it is.
Adoption has never been a 2nd best for us. So the plan is to start back on the adoption path next year.
